Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ I might as well jump right into it and let you know what kind of a day I had yesterday.First, let me back up to tell you that it all started off with me recieveing a wonderful email from Shirley (no blog) last week, telling me how much she enjoyed reading my blog and liked seeing how excited I get over a project. She asked if it would be okay for her to send me something. We discussed it and I said that I was really thrilled that she wanted to do something like that. You expect something like a pattern or something , you know, a little something nice from someone which is certainly in itself generous enough. It meant a lot that someone wanted to do even that for me. Well , we had a longish day with schoolwork and went off to the bowling alley for practice, to the grocery store, then home . When we got there , there was this package on the porch and it was from Shirley. I brought the groceries in, went back and got the package, quickly put the groceries away . I opened the card and then the package. Inside was a little package which I opended first as she had already told me it needed to go in the refrigerator. Ah-hah! Chocolate! This is what that package was. Doesn't it look yummy?!
I opened the one on top first, and inside were these lovelies! A stitchers station, two packages of needles, a needle minder, and some GAST floss in beautifully rich deep tones. Lovey gift right? Wait! I'm not done!
I opened package #2 . Inside were all of these wonderful things!! Patterns from Little House Needleworks and Plum Pudding Needleart WITH the flosses tucked inside! Also a Shepherd's bush needleroll kit....
....then came this wonderful Thimbleberries quilt book with a little charm quilt pattern and two charm packs!!....
..... then two Carriage House Samplings patterns; Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow and Village of Hawk Run Hollow! Also 3 Blackbird Designs pattern books!! .....
Wait, wait!! I'm not done! She also sent some very very generous cuts of linen and jazlyn!!!
I've died and gone to stitcher's Heaven I tell ya!! I can't believe the generousity that was bestowed upon me! ME! I could never tell Shirley how much this is appreciated and what it did to uplift my spirits! You know, I mean this in all sincerity. I really love everything and I am so excited to start plotting and planning my next stitching. What means the most though, was that she wanted to. It absolutely blows me away!! It touches my heart. :)
